Planning Alikanas Holidays
Alikanas is in the EET/EEST timezone (UTC+3/2), and the best time to visit for Alikanas holidays is during its long, hot summer months from May to October. However, winter is still mild and a good time to explore the archaeological sites, and spring (March-May) is the best time to see the lush landscapes surrounding Alikanas at their most fertile. There is a full range of accommodation options available to holiday-makers on Alikanas holidays, from luxury villas on the beach and high-end hotels, to studio apartments and traditional village shacks. Alikanas holidays offer a good local bus system to get around the island, and the Zante Airport is only 30 minutes away and receives direct flights from around the UK and mainland within Greece.
Alikanas Holidays Highlights
Alikanas is blessed with miles of idyllic beaches, but one particular recommendation is Xehoriati, which offers stunning views across the water. However, holiday-makers looking for wondeful nature should not stop at the beaches, because the area inland is just as stunning, with lush forests, craggly mountains and rows of vineyards and olive groves. A good way to explore this region is by bicycle or even on horseback. Many archaeologists believe Alikanas could be the location of the ancient city of Arcadia, and holiday-makers will find several important archaeological sites open to them in the area. Of course, being a traditional village, Alikanas holidays also offer spectacular local wine, souvlaki and tasty homemade pita breads for visitors to enjoy.
